The Eclectic Collector Look – Yep That’s Us

Hello Friends,

As I have mentioned we are currently working on decorating our home. I have been doing lots of research online (many many valuable hours on Pinterets), Scouring various magazines, visiting funky stores and talking to friends.

People are always asking us what look are you going for or what is the feel you are trying to achieve and I just didn’t know how to explain it. Basically I don’t want things to be too matchy matchy and I want to just be able to buy beautiful things without to much concern about everything going together.

I was looking at Apartment therapy tonight and found this post¬†and now I have a name for the style we are tying to achieve in our home. The Eclectic Collector look ( sounds fancy does’t it)

Here are some beautiful images from the above post.







Over the coming weeks I hope to share pictures from parts of my home as we finish off different bits and pieces.

What is your decorating style?

  1. Gorgeous pics! My style is that I don’t have a style. I get what I like and hope it works. I think I’ll be borrowing the term ‘Eclectic Collector’!

    Some rooms are more structured than others – our tiny little study (through necessity) and the play room (hoping the kids will remember that everything has a place – ha).

  2. Em, Sounds like we think about decorating our homes the same way. I think it makes it a lot easier to change up when you get bored too

  3. Hi Julia, forgot how wonderful your blog is! I absolutely love decorating my home and this is my style too, mixed with a clean Scandinavian/NY influence. Definitely, just choose stuff that you like, it always comes together. But be careful with ‘Eclectic Collector’ as it can easily become too busy-looking especially if every room has it’s own ‘look’. Just make sure there is a balance of colour etc. All my walls are painted in Natural White, floors are natural pine, with one black wall panel (window frames are black also). This base works very well with pops of eclectic! =)

    • Thanks for stopping by Liz, Your home sounds fabbo. We are still working on our home but it is slowly coming together. I am loving just buying pieces that I love and like you said it does always just come together. x

  4. I can’t wait to see photos of your home, I really love this style of decorating. I still don’t have a name for the look I’m working towards in my own home. It doesn’t help that I love so many different styles and change my mind constantly :)

  5. It will be even more fabbo when all the renovations are complete! It is so hard with small kids…;)
    There are two websites that I love and would like to share:
    http://fermliving.com.au/ (I have a few of their lovely/quirky things but not enough!)
    http://completepad.com.au/ (gorgeous things and owner Cathy is the sweetest)

    • Oh Liz how did I not know about these. I need the globe planter from Complete Pad it is amazing and would be perfect for my outside area thanks

  6. oops, and love love the brand Marimekko – this is just one shop that sells it:

  7. Nice! I just bought a gorg bedhead and desperately want the carved ‘tree of life’ artwork to complete my living room. Be careful this site can send you broke ;)

    • Shh don’t tell my hubby but I need more tea towels and the ones from ferm are so adorable. That artwork is amazing. Would be beautiful anywhere

  8. Are you in love with Ferm? =)
